Minton will replace Fuhrer as CCHS head football coach
MORGAN CITY — Central Catholic High School Principal Vic Bonnaffee announced this afternoon that Patterson High’s Tommy Minton will replace David Fuhrer as Central Catholic’s football coach, effective March 1.
In explaining the decision, Bonnaffee said when he came to Central Catholic, he would have liked to have seen his head coaches serve in that capacity in just one sport to increase competitiveness to the likes of that of a Class 3A school. He said the move to limit a person to a head coaching position in one sport helps them in their personal lives, too.
Bonnaffee said through an evaluation as well as the chance to hire Minton, who announced last month he was retiring from the public school system March 1 with an eye toward a private school job, he decided to seek Minton for the job.
He added that the addition of Minton will allow the school to have no more than one person as the head coach in more than one sport.
In addition to football, Fuhrer has served as head coach of another sport at Central Catholic, track and field.
Bonnaffee said Fuhrer would remain as track and field coach as well as a teacher at the school.
